    Default Hackint0sh Shopping list... Gigabyte X58, Core i7

    Could someone Please review the below list, let me know if I'm overlooking anything, if you have alternate recommendations, or any advice.

    The only other Hackint0sh I've done is a Dell Mini and that was super super simple...

    This one I know will be a bit more complex.

    My goal is to use this as a workstation for design (graphic/web) a lot of photoshop, indesign, flash etc.

    Thanks!!

    Richie

    Great Thanks!!

    That's what I was hoping for, a build that could utilize a retail version.

    I did notice one thing I forgot to add to my list... An optical drive.

    Thanks again for checking in.

    No tricks will be necessary to get all the core's functioning? Should be pretty on par with a Mac Pro?

    New Shopping list...

    Any reason why I shouldn't pull the trigger? Going to order this weekend, and hopefully build next weekend.

    Thanks everyone for your help.

    Awesome!! Thanks so much, I know I'm a pain.

    I just don't want to make a fatal mistake on a Pricey item.

    I've been using a hackint0sh Macbook Mini (dell mini 10v) and completely locked myself out today (updating to 10.5.7) because I didn't understand all the in's and outs...

    but I figured out how to fix it (on my own) So I think I'm ready to do a "Hack Pro"

    Very very excited!! I haven't owned anything other than a retail mac in over 10 years!!! And I can't afford a new Mac Pro.
